. and then jon jay against mijares, with jason motte. the cardinal closer getting loose. will have at least a two-run lead in the bottom of this ninth. kozma. strike two. kozma with an rbi single, a stolen base, a run scored in the four-run fourth for st. louis. each side got more in the fourth. after the cardinals got two in the second and the home run by freese. that is all the scoring. fouled back. kozma, not a big guy. he gets a pretty good riff. the count still 0-2. not only does he have a single. for an rbi. but he has lined out to left. >> joe: another 0-2. down for ball one. the giants in their half of this ninth will have the eight, nine and one spot. crawford, pinch-hitter and pagan. two pinch-hitters at the start. kozma strikes out. >> tim: wow! what a disappearing slider by mijares. watch this ball break. it disappears on kozma. missed that ball by eight inchs. that is nasty right there. >> joe: so out, shane robinson will come off the bench to bat for boggs. one scoreless inning for mitchell. after mujica struck out the side in the seventh. rosenthal worked a scoreless sixth. rzepczy

for the giants. >> tim: i think blanco went for the safe play. watch jon jay put the glove up as though he were going to make the catch. blanco did not have a good read. that frees him right there and could only go to third. >> joe: so the bases are loaded with theriot, the right-handed hitter, coming up. rzepczysnki is in the bullpen. right at the top of the hour here in san francisco, a beautiful night, 62 degrees. that's us, joe, tim, kenny and erin at&t park. and this crowd has been loud all night. theriot's second at-bat since taking over for the injured scutaro. good breaking ball for strike 1. on deck, the switch-hitting sandoval with rzepczysnki in the bullpen. here's the 0-1. strike 2. guillermo mota will join romo if this inning gets out of hand. theriot trying to add to it. the 0-2 pitch. breaking ball fouled back. game three, a late afternoon game in st. louis on wednesday. giants trying to even the series. great work tonight from ryan vogelsong, their starter. a breaking ball. fouled away. >> tim: theriot fighting off some good pitches from shelby miller. >> joe: the cardinals are
